The Glacier Lagoon
No Iceland visit is complete without visiting the Glacier Lagoon (Jökulsárlón) at Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. Nature in and around this area is extreme to say the least, and in 2004 and 2011 there was a volcanic eruption underneath Vatnajökull glacier in Grímsvötn. Following those eruptions millions of cubic tonnes of water flowed down from the glacier, taking everything in its path with it to the ocean. Therefore you will see vast landscapes of sand in these parts of the country. The beauty of the Glacier Lagoon will surely mesmerize you. You will also find the town of Höfn, which is situated around an hour east of the Glacier Lagoon.
